Savory Waffle Recipes

Mix up your standard waffle routine with savory ingredients for a new tasty meal.



We all love homemade waffles. Piled high, swimming in syrup, topped with a blanket of powdered sugar; these crispy dough treats are sweet heaven on a plate. Buttery, gooey goodness gets trapped in a waffle’s tiny square pockets, bringing a flavor explosion in the morning. Let’s face it: There might not be a better breakfast food. But, is that all they’re good for?

No, waffles are much more versatile than many of us realize. We can show off waffles in an array of savory flavors any time of day. Top this crunchy cuisine with melty Gouda and ham, sautéed spinach and roasted garlic butter — or even hearty chili and sour cream. Advanced waffle wizards (those with a waffle iron in the kitchen) can even incorporate a variety of flavors and spices into the actual waffle batter before it hits the heat!

Spicy jalapenos and cheddar? Pesto Parmesan? There are no wrong answers with this multitalented morsel, so stop waffling with your waffles!

Here are a few ideas to get you started:
